Press release date: February 7, 2014

Cypress, CA — FOR-A has announced that several of its products are being used for production of the upcoming Winter Games. Networks in the U.S., Canada, Brazil, and Japan are deploying the company’s 4K super slow motion camera, video archiving recorder, and frame rate converter technology for their coverage of sporting events.

Among the products being used is FOR-A’s FT-ONE 4K super slow motion camera. The camera is being rented to a major American broadcast network through Los Angeles-based Video Equipment Rentals. Japan’s national public broadcasting organization will also use the FT-ONE. Capable of recording up to 900 frames per second (fps), the FT-ONE will be on hand in Sochi to capture high-quality 4K imagery and provide super slow motion playback during pivotal moments in the competition. The award-winning full 4K variable frame rate camera has been used for production of several major sporting events, including last year’s professional football championship game, automobile racing, boxing events and several Red Bull competitions.

The same major broadcast network in America will also be using FOR-A’s frame rate conversion technology. Other users of FOR-A’s frame rate converters for the Winter Games include Canada’s national broadcaster and Quebec-based Aldea Solutions, who is providing conversion and transmission services to a Brazilian broadcaster. The networks will rely on FOR-A’s FRC-8000HS and UFM-30FRC to ensure seamless transmission of footage in the proper country standards. FOR-A announced new features of the FRC-8000HS HD/SD frame rate converter last year that cater to the production of winter sports, including the ability to select a ‘winter sports’ scene type, a special mode created to optimize the conversion process in environments with high-speed moving objects in highly saturated backgrounds that contain a lot of bright white, such as snow or ice. The latest software release offers FRC-8000 operators a unique level of in-depth user control, with the ability to customize settings based on their specific needs.

Also on hand in Sochi by the major American broadcast network will be FOR-A’s LTR-120HS video archiving recorder. The unit uses high-quality AVC-Intra/DVCPRO codec and MXF wrapper/un-wrapper to record MXF files. Designed to enable “archive at ingest” solutions, the LTR-120HS can easily record video footage as an MXF file in real time.

“At FOR-A, we pride ourselves on providing efficient, innovative technology that our customers can rely on,” explained Hiro Tanoue, FOR-A Corporation of America’s President. “We’re happy to have a number of our solutions deployed in Sochi for the biggest happening of the year in sports.”
